Sound The Trumpet: Jamaican Roots
The Fisher Center for the Performing Arts
About Jamaican Roots
Trinidadian trumpeter Etienne Charles leads this concert featuring rising Jamaican vocalist Shenel Johns, rightfully described as “history in the making” by the Boston Globe. Exploring the styles of mento, ska, reggae, rocksteady, dub, and their various contemporary influences, Charles and Johns feel the flow of Jamaican influence on today’s global sound of blues, jazz, and pop.
Presented in association with the Catskill Jazz Factory.
